You didn't think it through. You did not have the foresight to bring along a Designated Driver. You also didn't notice that even tasting 3 ounce samples can add up.  Now you feel your reflexes are not quite up to Chuck Norris levels. Well we know this can happen to anyone so we have a Safe Ride Home for you, and it's completely complimentary.
